Mainly because the rest of us don’t want anything to do with it! Global warming, overpopulation, biological warfare, financial meltdown...it’s really going to be dreadful!
And graduation is a time for celebration.
And, more importantly, you will never have to listen to all that “Bridge the 21st century” turd from politicians, advertisers and every other company trying to con money out of you!
Which, thanks to decades of dumbing down by our nation’s educators, has as much hope as finding a cure for HIV-AIDS? Not that it matters, because all the jobs you’ll be competing for won’t be worth a flying %$^& anyway!
Those people are idiots, ‘because you could study for the next 1,000 years, but unless you miraculously happen to have super-skills there’s not a chance in hell, you will be the next Lionel Messi, Steve Jobs or Steven Spielberg. Face it; it’s over before you know it!
Actually, the “glory of success” is waiting to be grabbed by the 2% of your classmates- the really geeky, nerdy ones who actually did their homework and sucked up to the teachers- who might buck the trend and achieve fame, wealth and power…only to be struck down in the prime of their lives by cancer, an early heart attack, a car crash or a run-in with someone from the other 98% in a street fight. So you see, life IS fair after all!
They might provide some measly bit of comfort after the world has beaten you down!
cause no matter how bad you blow it, at least you won’t be as pathetic as these geezers in the front row from the classes of '87,'88 and '89 who have nothing better to do than fill their few remaining days by coming back to their old school and spending three hours - just to get some cheap applause for not having croaked yet!
In a fatal drunk driving accident after getting sloshed at the graduation party…
Although I doubt it, because if I were any good at this sort of thing, I’d be sitting at home, instead of gazing out upon this sea of void spaces between your ears, barely making enough for taxi fare to get me out of here.
Go to hell.
